deliverance realtime. >> that's exactly right. i was a student at stanford when i heard the movement about divestment from south africa in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new yo

president obama spoke of his appreciation for nelson mandela and his struggle. >> the questions we face today, how to promote equality and justice, how to uphold freedom and human rights, how to end conflict and sectarian war, these things do not have easy answers. but there were no easy answers in front of that child born in world war i, nelson mandela reminds us that it always seems impossible until it is done. >> it poured rain during the entire ceremony, rain which in south africa is considered good luck. it appears the rain kept the crowds smaller. the stadium holds 95,000 people. it was about two-thirds full. >> for three days nelson mandela's body will lie in state at the union building in pretoria where he was sworn in as president in 1994. each morning his coffin will be carry fluid the streets to give as many as possible to pay final respects. a funeral willen sunday at his childhood village. head to nbcbayarea.com and search nelson mandela. >> if you are up early with us this morning, may want to think about what you're going to wear. dress in layers, i would think. >> brilli

his own place in a civil rights struggle against apartheid. >> when it comes to president obama's presence on the international stage this potential for comprehensive agreement with iran yesterday. it could be worse. when it comes to the international stage how is his capital? >> i don't think it is exceedingly high. i think a lot of american allies think america has lost its nerve in some regard particularly when it comes to confronting iran. i think there is difficulty with our credibility because our economic standing has impact as well. it doesn't diminish america's power and influence in the world. >> how much focus for president obama in terms of international? it isn't just iran? >> it is looking so difficult. as you look towards next year disengaging from afghanistan becomes the story. iran becomes the big test. no one knows whether iran will do what president obama wants it to do which is basically dismantle any pretense. >> nice to have you here. we'll see you a little bit laterer. a little bit later. >>> we vel a preview of "meet the press" later. meantime jenna is here
